Harper Family Reunion

Hi guys!  How is your weekend going?  I've been trying to be a bit scrappy this weekend.  I've been out of the game for awhile after my wrist surgery so it is nice to feel up to a scrappy marathon!

I decided to do Fia's Color Challenge at Sketches4all.  I just really loved all the colors.  So next I searched for a sketch to inspire me and finally found the best one at GrandDivas Creative Corner.  In addition to her sketch challenge, she encourages you to combine her challenge with two other challenge from her scrappy friends Rochelle Spears Theme Challenge: "Family" and Kristi B's Stash Challenge: "Polka Dots & Chevrons".  So I did!  

My Mind's Eye had the perfect papers for me to use - Vintage Christmas by Katie Pertiet.  So gorgeous!  And all just the perfect colors for Fia's Color challenge!!  And loaded with dots and chevrons for Kristi B's challenge!  Score!  hehe

I got busy layering my papers.  I can't tell you how many times it took before I got the paper "V's" correct!  I was having a total brain fart but they finally came out right.  LOL

I had these cute decorative bags from Fancy Pants - Merry Little Christmas line that I was itching to use so I tucked one behind a photo and added a tag in it for some hidden journaling.  I really enjoyed doing the hand stitching to frame in the focal point too.

I used some photos from our Annual Harper Family Reunion/Christmas Party that we have every first Saturday in December in Texas.  These folks are my family from my biological Dad's side of the family.  I just LOVE them all so much and I am so happy that my Aunt and Uncle host this party every year!  The kids were having fun making "horse faces" and getting us all to laugh and we always gather everyone for a group photo each year.

Here is a photo of the birthday boy, his sister and I being silly! ha

Speaking of family, my son, Riley turns 8 tomorrow!  So be expecting a birthday layout soon! ha

Until next time...happy scrapping!
